clothing size: why we shouldn’t define ourselves by the numbers

hey guys! welcome back to maggie’s doodles 💕 i want to share some encouragement with you today!

this week i bought myself new shirts. i loved getting to add to my wardrobe!

shirt size: L

what really stood out to me, though, was that the shirts were sized differently. i bought XS, S, M, L, and XL shirts yesterday.

but they all fit me about the same way!!

that’s just *crazy*

shirt size: XS

i remembered that the “size” of my clothes has very little to do with my body. it’s all about how these brands make their size charts.

no matter what size shirt i’m wearing, i’m still me 😍

shirt size: M

that got me thinking about how we view others’ opinion of us! one person may support us, another may question us, a third might doubt us. those perspectives will only affect us as far as we let them. just like the shirts, we are the same person, regardless of the labels, opinions, or viewpoints.

when we define ourselves by our own convictions, and value the opinions of those who truly matter to us, we’re right where we need to be. 💖

i enjoyed chatting about this with you today! i appreciate reminders like this for myself- it’s easy to forget when it’s been a while since these things have been talked about.

what are your thoughts on this topic?
i’d love to hear from you!
